Amatrol’s Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Motor Control Learning System (85-MT5AB10) teaches learners how to control the movement and velocity of AC motors using an Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1000 PLC. Almost every industry uses PLCs to control AC motors including manufacturing facilities, steel manufacturers, paper manufacturers, and many others making this one of the most common applications for PLCs. A common example of PLC motor control is the positioning and homing of an indexing table.
The 85-MT5AB10 covers the basics of PLCs and how to operate them, PLC programming, timers, counters, and PLC integration with motor control components. Learners will then use this knowledge to practice hands-on skills by linking the PLC to a motor starter, a reversing motor starter, and many other real-world devices.
Learners will apply this knowledge to hands-on skills such as monitoring the operation of input and output instructions, designing a PLC program that uses a safety interlock to control the operation of a machine, and designing a PLC program to control the number of production cycles.
